Many people have misinformation or incorrect assumptions about PTSD.
You may think that PTSD is something that only soldiers suffer from, or
people who live in very violent circumstances, such as in war zones or
gang-ruled neighborhoods. But the truth is that anyone who undergoes
trauma can have PTSD. Trauma comes in many forms, but the bottom line is
that anyone who has been in circumstances that made them fear deeply
for their safety or sanity can suffer from PTSD. Noise in My Attic is

her way back from depression, suicidal thoughts, and loneliness while
her marriage and job dissolved around her. Join Phoenix in her
remarkable search for peace and healing—and prepare to have your eyes
opened to the reality of trauma sufferers all around you.
